The Door Control Receiver is used to receive radio waves related to the entry functions of the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly. The certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) decodes the requested electrical key transmitter sub-assembly operation by identifying a key code based on the radio waves received via the door control receiver. The door control receiver receives a signal from the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly and sends signals to the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) through the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly). (For example, if a door lock operation is requested, the certification ECU [smart key ECU assembly] sends a door lock command to the main body ECU [multiplex network body ECU]).
